Returns the ALix data for the requested pair X in time frame Y.
Note: The "columns" value shows the number of stored data arrays for the pair in said time frame and is currently used for debugging purposes only.
We check whether our gathered data doesn't contain more than one data array per day.
In this example the total volume for 7 days was 74084.68313822. This value is divided by the number in the "columns" value, which should be identical with the "frame" value, to get the "alix" result.
There is always room for improvement, in this case describing that the GUI shows those exact time frames, which I falsely assumed to be obvious, but you can not claim there is no (essential) documentation at all.
I did my research here. The PHP libraries I found suitable cost around 100-300 dollars for commercial use. I’m not willing to pay that kind of money out of my own pocket, but I can surely imagine to include that feature.
No. Here is what I answered @desrever to nearly the exact same question:
I’ve divided the cost report in to running and software costs. Running costs are 1090 for 6 months or 181.67 NBT per month. That could be lower in the second contract term, because I might have a better feeling what “maintenance package” is really required
There is room left to reduce server and CloudFlare costs. I’ll have to think about it. Not sure what extend of reduction I would be comfortable with yet. The absolute minimum of server costs would be 20 NBT / month without CF plus maintenance hours á 30 NBT.
I was talking about the future. Daology is a company, no non profit. I assume they will have to generate revenue at some point. I see no advertisement on the site, so I assume that the communities had to pay for it.
Asking for contingencies in case it doesn’t is not predicting its failure. I’m just saying that this would not be an issue if open sourced, but as you don’t want to open source we have to think about possible contingencies, such as if we are not able to reach consensus on the affordable continuation of this project in the future.
When daology starts asking for custodial grants to cover their programming costs I’ll start asking similar questions.
I’m not trying to imply that Nu shouldn’t care about money, because there’s (temporarily?) a lot of BTC on T4 buy side.
Nu needs to be prepared for the next steps, of which FLOT and decentralized higher tier management is an important part.
What I was trying to say is:
Nu is both in need for such a service and can afford it. That would have been different to some degree 12 months ago.
The BTC in T4 is temporary. A lot of buyback BTCs have gone into the hands of non-shareholders and will leave Nu. If tier 4 and the buy back value are not preserved well when the BTC price tide changes Nu will have an unprecedentedly hard time to maintain the buy side. Development is importand but we should spend it carefully.
And that’s why I’d rather see a part of the funds spent on this kind of development than on so much more and (at least partly) predictable buybacks that make people rich who buy today and sell in one of the buy walls in the coming weeks.
So right now Nu would have to pay whenever the software is upgraded? (Nu could use the version it paid for for ever) or is it a license that lets Nu use the software for a certain amount of time?
Also, I am wondering why the software code is closed.
In case it is open sourced, obviously @willy would need to find another business model but it could make it more transparent.
What about maintenance fees?
you encrypt the source code, give it to someone for escrow (multisig?). Then, give the private key to specific trusted members of the community that will collude with you and not the escrow. The idea being that if you disappear and you don’t take a whole section of the community with you we will possibly be able to continue the project.
[best not-an-expert face I can muster]
Thanks for your response @willy But comparing this with a game is a bit unfortunate in my view. This is a piece of software I believe NU will need to rely on, that is not the case with a game. Therefore providing the Shareholders with the ability to continue the service in some way or the other when you are not available during an agreed timeframe and potential some other conditions is a requirement in my view. This assumes correct payments have occurred.
The piece of software is very useful but the license is a bit problematic since Nu wants to have control over the code.
I would vote immediately for that grant if @willy is willing to give away the basic code at the end of the term so that Nu is left with something in case Nu cannot pay any more for coinerella or @willy is unable to continue the service for whatever reason.
